Need help with fitting.

Recommended Posts

Hi, im pretty new to the forums so im going to introducw myself. Im brandon and i am confused what i should get. I am 5'2 and in the 140-150 pounds and pretty experienced with four wheelers and dirt bikes. My question is would i be able play around on something like a stock yfz 450 without having to constantly be up on it making sure it wouldnt flip. Would i be able to handle the power/tourqe while being able to mess around and have fun?

The yfz450 is a great platform low wide and fast, it does breathe really well at high rpm and is a blast to ride, the throttle is very manageable and I shouldn't think you would be out of control (unless you wanted to be), I put a first time 2 wheeler rider on my wr400f last weekend and it was no big deal. The bike will for the most part only do what you want it to.

So, i would be able to manage something along the lines of a stock yfz pretty well?

Depending on what your prior experience is with I would say yes, but I don't know what you've ridden before

At you're height and weight, and commingled from a yz 85, a trx400ex sporttrax would be pretty fun and lot less money than the 450. But if you've been riding a 2stroke mx bike then you know to respect the throttle and when to use the clutch, the big thing is, that if you don't feel like you can handle a bike then maybe you should work up to it, or find a friend that has one and will let you try it out. For putting around at your weight you'd probably have a blast on a honda trx400ex sportrax , and still be able to pull wheelies.

If you want to challenge yourself and learn fast, the 450 would be ok. I was about 15 when I got my first 450 bike, and I loved it, taught me respect for a motorcycle.
